Superior Scribbler Award

Today's forecast for St. Peters, MO: mostly clear tonight with a low of 65 degrees, but dang, it's been hot outside today.

I'm pleased to announce that Cathy over at Cathy C's Hall of Fame blog has awarded me an award (blush, blush). In accepting this award, I promise to:

1. Pass the award on to five blogging buddies. It was hard to pick five, but I did my best. (See below)
2 Link to the author and name of the blog from who gave me the award. (See the link above to the talented and funny Cathy C. Hall's blog)
3. Display the award on my blog and link to this post which explains the award.
4. Visit this post and add his or her name to the Mr. Linky List at the Scholastic-Scribe's blog. (Okay. The name Mr. Linky List creeps me out, but being an obedient rule follower I did what was asked. If you visit Mr. LL you'll find me as #799.)
5. Post these rules (I like guidelines better) on your blog. (Again. The word "rules" bothers me so I'm calling them rules/guidelines.)
So, here are the five blog buddies I would like to recognize:

**Pat at Critter Alley. Pat is passionate about critters of all shapes and forms. She also is a wonderful writer who posts about markets that accept critter stories.

**Camille at a Day in the Life. Camille talks about stories --- hers and ours. She also has a website "Mommy and Me Travel," where she writes about traveling with children.

**Amy at Three Moons Rising. Amy is a brilliant writer (I don't use that word often) who blogs about writing, her life her family and her thoughts. While Amy doesn't blog very often, when she does it's worth the visit.

***Barbara at the Purple Pen. Barb is a former teacher and member of Saturday Writers who writes about her family and posts some of her poems and slice-of-life essays.

***Becky at Becky Povich. Groove along to the oldies on her jukebox while you read about books, writing, music, and life in general.

Okay. I think I've followed all the rules (err, guidelines). So, if you have some time and are so inclined, please visit Cathy C. Hall's blog and all my blogging buddies who are very deserving of this award.


  1. Donna, thank you so much!! I'm thrilled and honored that I was one of your "choices"! I just scanned through this, so I'm not even sure what it's all about.....but, hey...anytime I'm chosen by a friend for something good, then it's okay by me!....I'll read it better now, and try to follow the "guidelines"!!

  2. Wow. I almost feel as if I've won the award again, Donna :-) Thanks for the mention (over and over again!) And you so deserve to be called a Superior Scribbler. Wear your award proudly!

  3. Wow!!!Thank you Donna for your support. You are indeed worthy of this award.

  4. Thanks so much, Donna! That's very cool.

    Now I'll get to work on those "guidelines", too!
